HBO is getting into pot dealing. The pay-cable channel placed a series order for the comedy “High Maintenance,” Deadline.com reports. The series, which has been airing on the Web on Vimeo, moves to HBO with a six-episode order.
The report adds that the 19 existing episodes will also make their way, later this year, to HBO, HBO Now and HBO GO.
“Following a Brooklyn pot dealer who delivers to clients with neuroses as diverse as the city, ‘High Maintenance’ is created and written by the married duo of Katja Blichfeld (’30 Rock’) and Ben Sinclair (‘Sisters’), and executive produced by Katja Blichfeld, Russell Gregory and Ben Sinclair,” Deadline reports.
